Bill's Five Favorite MMO Classes

Posted Apr 13, 2010 by Jon Wood

Bill's Five Favorite MMO Classes

MMORPG.com's Bill Murphy continues his series of "Bill's Favorite" list by jotting down five of his favorite MMORPG classes.
 

The List

Right off the bat, as I have in the past couple of weeks, let me state that the following list is simply my own favorite five classes from various MMOs. I'm not looking to make any broad statements about the industry, but rather to state my own tastes, and hope that the rest of you will share with me your own. I'm sort of a notorious alt-a-holic, but even people like me have favorite classes. There are so many to choose from, and even though most classes tend to fall in line with a few basic roles within the grouping dynamic, the following handful are those which I have found the most fun time and again over the years.

Honorable mentions go out to the Conjourer in EQ2, the Celestial Powerset in Champions Online, WoW's most hated/loved Hunter, Auto Assault's Engineer, my Lurikeen Ranger from DAoC, and Guild Wars' Mesmer. All very adequate in their own regard, but the following are my top five most fun MMO classes. Feel free to shed light on your own in the forums!

#5 Age of Conan - Tempest of Set:

All the classes in Age of Conan fall into the holy trinity of healer/tank/dps, but the beauty of the ToS to me is that it manages to be both a proficient healer and a harbinger of death. Like any good hybrid, the Tempest might not be tops in either category but I'm a solo player most of the time and the versatility of the Tempest means I can play the game exactly how I want. It also means that I can do my part when needed in group situations. Not to mention there's just something very satisfying about dropping your Idol, letting it tick off bolts of electricity at several mobs, while your own buffs do the same from your body, as you whack the bejesus out of cannibals with a large mace and shoot lightning from your fingertips. There are a lot of ways mobs can die in Age of Conan, and beheadings and impaling are the easy favorites of most. My own preferred method of destruction is when one turns blue and fries to a crisp because of my allegiance to Set.
